Babies in Waiting - Rosie Fiore

Firstly I wanna say I love that cover. The silhouettes just do it for me. It's simple, classy.
Babies in WaitingThis book was a relatively easy but an addicting read. It had a simple plot-line, following the interwoven stories of three women through their pregnancies. The stories aren't all that similar which makes the story more interesting, but it also shows why at times they seem to have nothing in common, apart from their pregnancies they initially do have nothing in common. 
My favourite thing about the book was the growth of Gemma. She starts out as a bit of a spoilt brat, she manipulates others determined to get her own way. However she turns into someone much more mature, through her love for her child, and is amply rewarded for it at the end of the book. 
Your initial thoughts upon starting are that Louise has done something unforgivable but in the end you can empathise with her. And Toni who has the seemingly perfect life has problems aplenty, she just doesn't air them for the world to see. 
I thought that it was a good story and the characters were properly fleshed out.
